Does Zantac Cause Prostate Cancer?
Since the FDA ordered manufacturers to stop selling Zantac and generic ranitidine due to potential Zantac cancer risks, many are wondering what specific types of cancer Zantac may cause. Some, in particular, are asking “Does Zantac cause prostate cancer?”
“Does Zantac Cause Prostate Cancer?” What We Know Right Now
According to the FDA, Zantac is contaminated with potentially cancer-causing NDMA — a dangerous chemical that is classified by the World Health Organization (WHO) as a “probable carcinogen,” meaning that it may cause cancer.
Based on recent research, it is believed that Zantac may cause prostate cancer, in addition to these other types of cancer:
- Kidney cancer
- Liver cancer
- Testicular cancer
- Pancreatic cancer
- Ovarian cancer
- Uterine cancer
- Bladder cancer
- Stomach cancer
- Intestinal cancer
- Esophageal cancer
- Colorectal cancer
- Throat/nasal cancer
- Brain cancer
- Breast cancer
- Thyroid cancer
- Lung cancer (if you’ve never smoked)
- Multiple myeloma
- Non-Hodgkins lymphoma
While Zantac may cause prostate cancer, it may also be associated with the development of other cancers. Research is ongoing at the Sloan Kettering Memorial Cancer Center to help determine what types of cancers that Zantac may cause, in addition to prostate cancer.
